31DC2013 Day 25: Inspired by Fashion (Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf)

This prompt usually stumps me every year. While I do think that I have a decent amount of style, I'm not so up on exactly what's going on in the world of fashion. HOWEVER! One item I did recall when brainstorming for today's post was the Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf. Well, I didn't recall that it was specifically a McQueen piece, so I googled "black and white skull scarf" and connected the dots from there. See, I told you I don't know fashion!

This is what the scarf looks like for those of you who haven't seen it. Isn't it beautiful? I would love to own one, except for the price of course! Time to go searching for a cheaper alternative...
For my manicure, I started with a base of three coats of OPI Solitaire, a white Liquid Sand polish with small silver glitters. After letting it dry completely, I stamped on a pattern from Vivid Lacquer plate VL001 using Essie Licorice.

This was my first time stamping on a textured polish! It went just as well for me as any of the other stampings I've done, which is to say I had to fill in a couple of spots freehand. I've gotta stamp more often so eventually I won't have to do those touchups anymore.

I do like the way the stamping looks on the textured polish -- very unique.
